Sway bar link kit

Just realized I need a new sway bar link kit. I have a 4.5" lift. The only one that I have found so far that I can afford, the links have a curve in them but the ones on mine are(well are supposed to be) straight. Would this kit work or do I need to find some that are completely straight?

Stock links have the bend in them to line up with the sway bar which is more narrow than the axle brackets, most aftermarket do not which can wear the bushings a bit sooner, but bushing kits are pretty cheap.

I fabbbed my own set of endlinks using a rod end at the top, so I don't have to deal with as mush bushing abuse. If you're handy and have the tools that's the way to go, but dagr8tim's link is a fine choice as are most other options from most offroad vendors.

These are what I put on mine. Not sure if they would work for 4.5 inches of lift.
